Fantasy Football – Gameweek 35


Just four weeks left until the end of the season but still plenty to play for. Our recent picks have been scoring well, with captain suggestions Arshavin and Fabregas both doing well. The Russian got a solid seven points while Cesc got the week’s highest score with 16. Torres could easily have had double figures too but ended with just two points as nothing quite went on target for him. Elsewhere, we tipped Chris Brunt and he had another massive game (14 points) while Rooney is developing a nice little run of form and has scored three goals, two assists and seven bonus in three games. On to this week.


Top three captain picks:

1. Torres/Liverpool – With Liverpool being the only top four club not halfway through a Champions League semi final, it means they will be the only team guaranteed to play all their big boys this weekend. I felt Torres was unlucky last week and on another day could have scored a couple. What better way to get back amongst the goals than a home game against Newcastle? 

2. Arshavin/Arsenal – Whilst I think Wenger will ultimately play Cesc this weekend, it’s less risky to go with Arshavin instead given the potential for an understrength Arsenal side. Portsmouth are just about safe and whilst they are hard to beat at home, I imagine Arshavin will be capable of twisting Sol Campbell silly if he comes up against him. 

3. Lennon or Modric/Spurs – Plays West Brom at home. I know they thrashed Sunderland last week but I think it was a one off. In light of most of the Spurs strikers being out of form/in mourning/injured it makes sense to go with one of their attacking midfielders instead. 




Three potential transfers in:

1. Brunt/West Brom – Showed his fourteen point effort two weeks ago was no fluke by matching it last week. Four goals and five bonus in three games. I know we tipped Lennon as a potential captain but that doesn’t mean West Brom can’t score against Spurs.

2. Yobo/Everton – Will replace the injured Jagielka in a solid Everton side. They could still pick up a clean sheet or two before the end of the season. 

3. Nelson/Blackburn – Quietly picked up six bonus, a goal and a clean sheet in his last five games. Chelsea aside, Blackburn’s remaining games are all against fellow strugglers.




Three to avoid:

1. Newcastle strikers – One goal since Shearer took over. 

2. Berbatov/Man Utd – I have a strange feeling Fergie may go with Tevez for the next couple of games. Either way, Rooney is the man in form and scoring.

3. Jagielka/Everton – Out for the season.
